Didn’t the Seahawks and Cardinals just play?
Sure seems like it, as the two clubs met less than three weeks ago at Qwest Field and will face off again on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. The 21-day proximity of the two divisional games is tied with six other NFL matchups this season for the shortest amount of time between meetings.
The immediacy of the two Seahawks-Cardinals tilts offers a stark contrast to Seattle’s matchups against the other two divisional opponents, as there are 91 days between both the San Francisco and St. Louis meetings. The Seahawks actually played two games against the Raiders — once in the preseason and once on Oct. 31 — just 59 days apart, 32 days less than the distance between the battles against the 49ers and Rams.
